Making your life feel utterly amazing and elevated doesn’t require buying big, lavish things – it’s all about the little things. There are so many fun and easy ways that you can give your life a little, luxe upgrade that will make you feel like a total queen, without breaking the bank. Plus, treating yourself like you’re a VIP sends a powerful message to the universe that you’re ready to step into the life you truly desire. Ready to uplevel? Here are seven things you can do:
1. Practice an empowering morning ritual
Implementing a morning ritual that makes you feel like a brand new human is one of the best most luxurious gifts you can give yourself. Your morning ritual can include anything from reading and journaling to taking a bath and putting on a face mask. If you carve out some me-time first thing in the morning, the rest of your day will feel upleveled too.
2. Get rid of old clothes
The dream version of yourself that is living a next-level life does not wear ratty, old clothes. Begin to step into the shoes of the person you want to be by literally getting rid of the shoes and clothes (yes, that includes the undies you’ve had since college) that don’t make you feel absolutely amazing when you wear them. This goes for loungewear you wear around the house, too. Instead of those 10-year-old sweatpants, opt for silky pajamas or a fluffy robe.
3. Elevate the energy of your space
The way your space looks makes a major impact on the way you feel. By giving your home some little, fancy upgrades it will instantly elevate you too. But don’t worry, you don’t have to blow your entire paycheck at Restoration Hardware. Things like buying fresh flowers, making your bed every morning, turning on your essential oil diffuser, sprinkling some crystals throughout your home, or swapping out mismatched hangers for some velvety ones will go a long way.
4. Treat yourself to something special
When you treat yourself to something special, you show the universe that you feel worthy and deserving and you will attract more good things into your life. Treating yourself from time to time is always a good idea, and is an easy way to uplevel. Again, it’s not about how much money you spend on your treat that matters — it’s the energy you put behind it and how much you savor it. A decadent made-at-home steak can taste just as good as an $80 one from a posh restaurant if you truly immerse yourself in every bite.
5. Actually use your fancy stuff
That bottle of champagne you’ve been “saving for a special occasion?” Go pop it open. What good does it do to have all your good stuff gather dust? Things are meant to be used and enjoyed as often as possible. Go through your home and take inventory of all the things you’ve hoarded away and deemed too special for everyday use — the body lotion that makes your skin feel divine, the face serum that feels like liquid gold, the dress that hugs your body in all the right places. Bottom line: stop saving your fancy things for a special occasion, because every day is a special occasion if you choose to make it one. Cheers to that!
6. Step into your self-worth
Stepping into your self-worth is the ultimate way to uplevel. Look at what areas of your life you’re not standing in your worth. Maybe you’re in a relationship with someone that doesn’t treat you well. Maybe you’re not charging enough for your skills and services. Maybe you’re stuck at a job that you know isn’t serving you. Whatever it is, the quickest way to uplevel and help attract the things you do want into your life is to let go of the things that make you feel like you’re not good enough. So ditch the bad partner, raise your rates, and quit that job — do something to prove to yourself and the universe that you know that you are worthy.
7. Do something out of the ordinary
With all the busyness of everyday life, it’s so easy to get stuck in a rut of doing the same thing over and over again. When this happens, life tends to feel dull and not so fun. An easy way to uplevel is to do something different. Go work from a coffee shop instead of at home in your pajamas, sign up for an interesting class you’ve always wanted to take but never have, or just take the scenic drive home. Switching up your daily routine even in tiny little ways will make you feel like a new person and totally raise your vibration in the process.
